The armed forces deliberately use the power of structure by getting everyone up at the same time, getting everyone to dress the same, giving everyone the same haircut, having everyone do the same basic training, and giving soldiers the same messages day after day after day. Each soldier’s activities are scheduled in advance and someone ensures they complete them. A culture of action is created and soldiers learn to respond with speed and efficiency using the skills and knowledge they were trained to use. The result of all this structure is predictable behavior. Leaders in the armed forces are masters of using structure to create constant and predictable behavior in individuals, even when those individuals are placed under great stress.
